Austin Adams Memorial Library Project 2021


Austin would be 12 in a few days...we've survived THREE years without him. I don't even know how that's possible! He is loved and missed beyond what I could have imagined!!! Each year as Summer rolls around my heart sinks and many days are a minute by minute struggle with the weight of grief. July hits extra hard!! Somehow I find myself lacking words to kick off the Austin Adams Memorial Library Project more than I have the last couple of years. However, I am looking forward to donating hundreds of books to the library again this year!


This quote by Jackie Robinson is always at the forefront of my mind as we approach Austin's birthday (July 2nd) and the anniversary of his passing (July 4th). “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” Our family is always working to make sure that Austin continues to have a positive impact in this world. Through Austin, hundreds of children will have access to hundreds of books that may not have been in the school library without him. This year our goal is to donate 400 books to the library!!


Kayleigh has spent hours and hours adding books to our Amazon wishlist. If you’d like to help us with this project, you can purchase items from the Amazon wishlist and have them shipped directly to us. Please, MAKE SURE TO SELECT “JUSTIN ADAMS” AS THE SHIPPING ADDRESS when you check out. By selecting the option to ship directly to us, we’ll add a label with Austin’s name inside the cover, and deliver the books to the school. We’d love to have you include a gift receipt with your name so we can add your name to the label as well. 


We love you and appreciate your support more than you can imagine. Please share this with your friends and family to help us reach our goal of donating 400 books to the library. 


Thank you for helping us to create a space that will benefit so many children. This school holds a special place in our hearts. Having Austin make a continual positive impact on hundreds of children through books helps our hearts to heal.

The Austin Adams Memorial Library Project 2020


This sweet boy would be turning 11 in a few days. We miss him every.single.second. His birthday and the anniversary of his death are such difficult days for our family. We have found that having something to look forward to is imperative to surviving the hard times. The discussion of making the library project an annual event started before we had even taken the books to the library last year. We’ve put a LOT of thoughts and planning into making the Austin Adams Memorial library project an annual event. 


This quote by Jackie Robinson has become one of my favorite quotes; “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” As Austin’s mom, it is important to me for Austin to continually have a positive impact on others. Last year we donated over 600 books with his name in them to the schools library. Austin impacted hundreds of children through the books in the library. 


Kayleigh has spent hours and hours volunteering in the library and adding books to our Amazon wishlist.

We love you and appreciate your support more than you can imagine. Please feel free to share this with your friends and family.
